Panties: Bikinis, Briefs, Thongs, or Granny Panties

 
Rate This

A friend, someone that I have known and respected for years, just told me that she prefers granny panties. I didn’t figure her for the full-underwear category, and I certainly have not found them comfy, but it’s a matter of what feels best for the woman wearing the panties.

Thongs, oh my God — there is an ill-fated relationship with thongs and men who prefer a woman in a thong. At some point that cute, tight little bottom that you had when he first viewed you in a thong will sag, leaving him with an image that a really decent nightmare cannot remove.

Briefs fit in there between the bikini wearer and the granny panty advocate, and usually look as though they were borrowed from the hubby or boyfriend. Though I have heard women say that they are extremely comfortable, bikini underwear is my personal preference, and yet, some women find them uncomfortable; my mother says they expose too much flesh.

Granny panties cover a multitude of sins, but on the grander scale, they would have to cover me head to toe to effect the proper coverage of everything that I, nor anyone with good sense, would want to view in a full-length mirror. There is really very little to compare, other than cloth used in the manufacture of undergarments, between the thong and the granny panties.

The thong uses less fabric, bares some areas that would better be covered, and allows for excessive aeration of the buttocks region. The granny panties encompass the better portion of a yard of fabric, covers all necessaries and some not too necessary, and allows no aeration in the buttocks region.

Wonder how boxers stack up in all the world’s market of women purchasing undergarments? For hygienic reasons, one would hope that any woman who is still in the childbearing years and has not had a hysterectomy or gone through menopause, will chose the appropriate pair of panties/lingerie for the monthly occasion.

Hygiene is a major factor in what you spray on the necessaries (pubic and underarm areas), or chose to wear for the likelihood that you might be involved in an accident where your undergarments would come under scrutiny.
